    Which one sounds better?
    Mark III
    The Mark is miced with SM57, a little inward from where the dustcap meets the cone.
    POD

    I like the Mark, but the POD isnt bad, try messing around with blending them maybe.

    The POD mix seems to work a bit better for me overall. Mind sharing the patch?

    I agree. I actually liked the POD better too.

    What POD was this?

    Not a bad idea. That didn't even cross my mind
    Sure. http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=8576978f64f7aad636df4e8dca141969ad5a24987ed7f3c55be6ba49b5870170
    It's actually a Toneport, but its the Big Bottom model.

    My vote goes to Mark III. Even that I like PODish tones I think the MarkIII sits better in there bro.

    I like the Mark III best. The POD tone isn't bad but it has some high end fizz that I don't like.

    that pod is terribly scooped sounding compared to the mesa. the mesa makes you mix sound more professional. if you want a more scooped sound i would just pull some mids out of the mesa.

    The mesa could be a little bit brighter, but for me, it's the clear winner. Sounds much more natural and pleasant to my ears.

    the pod is quite nasally compared to the mark III. Digging the mark III more, but it seems like it could be a bit brighter

    Thanks for the feedback guys. The Mark seems really dark to me. I had a 57 on axis over the dustcap and it still needs more top end. Kinda confusing.

    The sm57 is kinda dark. Try raising the 1 kh - 4 kh and you will be fine.

    I like the mark III one. Second has more high end but all most too bright.
